Default she's eating her poop!!!

Why? Yuk I read this can be normal behavior for a puppy but how do I get her to stop?

You can put pineapple in her food or they make products that make the poop taste bad. It amazes me that is tastes good. Here is a link I found...

Years ago my Aussie puppy did this. I got the additive and it works. He stopped and never did it again.

I tried the pineapple, but that didn't work. Vienna is a notorious poop eater, if I catch her in time she doesn't. The problem with the pills in this house is I'd have to give them to everyone.

GSDs are notorious poo eaters. Peeves lurks near Lily when he sees that she is going. We watch them and they both have good leave it commands, so he hears "leave it" almost every morning! Clean it up immediately so there are no temptations.

I know it's weird, but lots of dogs like poop. Our two don't eat dog poop but oh my goodness we have a lot of bighorn mountain sheep near our house and you don't want to have our two loose on a hike if the sheep have been anywhere nearby! Or geese. Blech! As lily cd re mentioned, the "leave it" command is your friend because they're dogs...they're going to want to eat other disgusting things from time to time too

Doggies love to eat poo. I had this problem when my terrier was little, he actually grew out of it, but for a long time it was a matter of training him "leave it" and cleaning the temptation up as soon as possible.

Other animal poop? That's a different story, both of them would happily gobble up cow pies and horse plops (especially horse plops), but their favourite of all is finding rabbit poo. I don't know what it is about Gryphon, but he can smell rabbit poop from like 20 feet away and he will just lock onto it like a missile.

Think about any house you've ever been too where there are house cats and dogs. Those folks work really hard to keep the dogs from consuming the contents of the litter box. I've seen some pretty contortionist arrangements for the cats to get into their boxes!

But seriously, leave it and religious cleaning of the poo.
